"The vehicle, which is the first of four cars that will be positioned on each of three trains, resembles a time-traveling machine.

(8/17/17) Silver Dollar City pretty much confirmed all the hype and rumors about their new amazing coaster coming in 2018 that is like no other on the planet... Time Traveler. Time Traveler is the World's Fastest, Steepest and Tallest Spinning Roller Coaster! Coming in at a cost of $26 million it features 3 inversions (Dive Loop, Zero-G-Roll and Vertical Loop) two LSM magnetic launches, magnetically controlled spinning cars. You'll start things off with a crazy 10 story 90º vertical drop right out of the station, all while your cars are already starting to spin. Plus the way this coaster is built right into the terrain is just beautiful. Check out the animated videos below and you can also visit the official website for more details here.
